Farm Aid Coming to Pittsburgh

Farm Aid 2002 is set for Sept. 21 at the Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pa., outside Pittsburgh. Organizers Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp are scheduled to perform, along with Farm Aid board member Dave Matthews. The first Farm Aid took place in 1985. “We’re still losing hundreds of farmers each week because of bad farm policies,” Nelson tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Farm Aid has raised more than $24 million for support of family farms. Matthews suggested the Pennsylvania location. CMT will telecast the concert live. 07/24/02
